. ♪ cisco. tomorrow starts here. >>> "we are the world" was a song written by michael jackson and lionel richie and produced by quincy jones. the star-studded video were released in 1995 and went on to raise millions for famine in africa. i can remember practicing this with my friends at the ymca summer camp. now it's back. but not in the way you might expect. because today the propaganda arm of the north korean government released a new "we are the world." it's a 3 1/2-minute music video. you can watch it here. it features an all-piano version of the song accompanied by image, of a space-age korea with a spaceship circling the earth. where a newly unified north and south celebrate -- here's the clincher -- as new york city burns. it's a bizarre video, to say the least. we know -- we think we know why they did it. because they feel a little left out. in the past few months, north korea has seen countries and companies around the world take bold steps into the cosmos. in the same amount of time, north korea just got one rocket up. they tried for two. so maybe that's a little embarrassing.

when jesse jackson had to hold his nose and go to damascus to beg for the release of an american pilot who had been shot down by the syrians. drones are clearly the wave of the future because they save american lives, but they're also effective for surveillance. they have far greater use than simply the kind of fighters we've used, and we actually also use them for domestic purposes. they were reportedly used in the case of the 5-year-old who was held in alabama. they have been used for weather. there are an estimated 8,000 drones, so although it's part of the most secret program, military program, we have, there are also other uses. >> which starts to frighten folks domestically. good thing with the outcome of that alabama case, but some folks think their civil liberties are about to be infringed upon at home. dan, i know from your reporting and the book you wrote, there was more debate within this administration about the transparency aspect of it than there was whether they would engage in a drone program. explain that. >> well, that's exactly right, and that comes up significantly

is that the conservatives out there, the people that really don't like the federal government, jack since andrew jackson's day, yet they benefit. when we have this big see kes tration that goes after nofl bases, army bases, usually tilts to the south. >> it takes us back to the debates back in the summer of 2011 when people showed up at tea party events and said, you know, i don't want the government messing with my medicare. the fact of the matter is that we have a real problem, and it is stoked, it is stoked by a group of players who operate within the republican party. what we desperately need right now is, frankly, a ronald reagan or a barry goldwater, william f. buckley, somebody who will stand up to the irrational section of that party and say, look, i'm a big conservative, but we have got to be big kids. we have to operate in the real world. >> i think we need john wayne for this one. i'd say john wayne and the panama canal. i think you need somebody to say we got to get a lot bigger in our thinking. great having you on john nichols and michael scherer of time. >>> this party is not big enough fo

night there was a special election. it was in a democratic seat to replace jesse jackson. a lot of people are scoffing about it. conservatives immediately because michael bloomberg went in. there was a candidate that was in a competitive race who was supported by the nra. bloomberg came in. and it changed everything overnight. >> he did. and he spent, i believe, $2 million on that race in a media market like chicago in a race at this level, $2 million is a lot of money. it's a lot of money anywhere. but coming in at the last minute and flood, saturate the airwaves with advertising in support of her and, you know, look. we talked about this a couple days before on the program. the mayor is a dangerous man in american politics right now for people who want to fight this battle. >> yeah, whatever you want to spend on trying to advocate for guns, he will triple, double, quadruple, he will spend more. >> he's got a limitless bank account, and as i said the other day, a lot of really smart political advisors who know that they want him to have an impact. and he cares about this. he's
